Rime formally announced for Nintendo Switch

Rime, an action-adventure puzzle game originally announced as a PS4 exclusive back in 2014, has been announced for Nintendo Switch.

In fact, the game had already been rated by the Brazil Advisory Rating Board last month, but today, the developer formally “re-revealed” the title and released the trailer posted at the top of this article.

Rime has had a rocky development, to say the least.

After originally partnering with Sony in 2014, Tequila Works, Rime’s publisher, reacquired the game’s rights in March 2016. The studio then partnered with Gearbox and Six Foot to publish the game.

Here’s how Tequila Works describes their game.

Rime is a single-player puzzle adventure about discovery, experienced through the eyes of a young boy who awakens on a mysterious island after shipwrecking off its coast. Players must navigate the island’s secrets by making use of light, sound, perspective and even time. Inspired by the rugged, sunbaked terrain of the Mediterranean coast, Rime paints its breathtaking world with a fusion of vibrant colors and moving musical undertones to set the stage for the deeply personal journey that awaits within.

Rime is due out in May 2017, a mere two months after the Switch’s launch.

Does Tequila Works’ new title intrigue you?

  1. Yes, RiME (according to their website, that’s the correct capitalization) intrigues me. According to “Nintendo Life”, though, it will be digital download only for the Switch. The physical version (for the PS4) is listed as $29.99 at Amazon – it would be nice if the digital version is cheaper, but I don’t expect it. Either way, this games seems to be a great fit for the home/portable design of the Switch, so I’ll most likely be getting it.
